Real Ale Ray left this review about Lion & Swan

This is a family run Hotel that dates from the 16th Century and was the town's former Coaching House. The interior is very modern in style with much of the walls and timberwork now painted in white. We took the left hand side of the entrance, where we encountered a small bar and beyond this a pool room. We found three pumps on the bar, all of which were not in use. I suppose with the Barley Hops opposite and the Spoons down the road, has had an effect on their cask ale sales.

A large pub/hotel. A small bar with pool table in separate room is to your left with another bar by reception. One real ale, Sharps Rockpool, available at the time.

This is a really nice looking pub that has got a few different rooms.
I went in the room to the left this was quite a nicely furnished room but as the pub is also run as a hotel this did seem more of an hotel bar than proper pub.
There was only one real ale on the bar which was Greene King IPA this was very dissapointing but i was the first customer in that day so it may improve when more beer was sold.
I would have enjoyed this pub more if it was a bit busier as i was here just after opening.
